Kim Yu-ri leaves the court.
GS Caltex Middle Blocker Kim Yu-ri said, “Hello. This is Kim Yu-ri, a volleyball player. I think she must have been very surprised to announce her retirement so suddenly,” she said.
She continued, “Looking back on my volleyball life, which was short if short and long if long, there were a lot of good things and a lot of hard things, but I think it was thanks to the fans’ support that I was able to come this far. Thank you so much. I will never forget it,” he added.
He also thanked his family. He said, “I am so grateful to my family, who have been a great source of strength just by being by my side whenever the hurdles I wanted to quit came. I want to say thank you so much to everyone who has been with me so far, and if you happen to run into me on the road in the future, please don’t be surprised and say hello! Like Kim Yu-ri, I will live well! Fighting,” he concluded.스포츠토토
Yu-ri Kim entered her professional career in 2010 when she was nominated for Heungkuk Life Insurance in the second round of the first round. After she left her court for a while, she came back and she played a big role at IBK Industrial Bank and GS Caltex. She also lifted championship cups at IBK Industrial Bank and GS Caltex.
In particular, Yu-ri Kim shed tears during an interview with the host broadcaster after the end of the Heungkuk Life on February 5, 2021, and she drew great attention from volleyball fans. She was even nicknamed ‘She is the Queen of Tears’.
However, Kim Yu-ri has not played a single game this season. This is because both of her knees are not completely broken. During the season, GS Caltex coach Sang-Hyeon Cha also said, “I’m in rehabilitation, but I can’t seem to rest. She is in rehab, but she doesn’t think it’s easy even if she thinks about it herself. Her knee is not good.”
Kim Yu-ri played 246 professional matches and left the court with a record of 977 points, a 37.66% attack success rate, and 0.340 blocks per set. Kim Yu-ri’s last game was against Heungkuk Life Insurance on March 21, 2022.
